CNN Advocates Watered-down Politically Correct Christianity
(NewsBusters) -- by Candance Moore --
CNN on Friday disgustingly advocated for a watered-down, more politically correct version of Christianity.
Highlighted at its website was research from a Princeton theology professor on the state of Christianity among teenagers. The study found that American churches have fallen for PC feel-good morality that's afraid of confrontation - and the result is a generation unable to distinguish Christianity from simple theism.
The author of the study, Kenda Creasy Dean, said the process was "depressing" as she interviewed one Christian after another describing God as a "therapist" who exists to validate their "self-esteem." Worse yet, many of them could not give a coherent explanation of the Gospel, content with a general belief that God wants them to "feel good and do good."
And in MSM newsrooms across the fruited plain, there was much rejoicing. Incessant pressure to water down Christianity has finally paid off.
CNN reporter John Blake wrote a piece on the sad phenomenon with no introspection as to who might be causing it:
If you're the parent of a Christian teenager, Kenda Creasy Dean has this warning:...Hmmm, why on Earth would pastors feel pressure to promote a gospel of niceness? Why would they be afraid of making their communities angry? Blake was clueless. There was no more discussion of the PC culture, no research into who came up with spineless Christianity...MORE...LINK
Your child is following a "mutant" form of Christianity, and you may be responsible.
Dean says more American teenagers are embracing what she calls "moralistic therapeutic deism." Translation: It's a watered-down faith that portrays God as a "divine therapist" whose chief goal is to boost people's self-esteem.
Chris Moore comments:
The article goes on to lament the left-liberal MSM and Hollywood sabotage of Christianity in general and evangelical Christianity in particular, but of course fails to note that the most powerful force in mainstream media is organized Jewry.
At one point, the article even ads:
When faced with evidence of systematic cultural mocking toward Christianity, liberals' fallback argument is to claim that all religions are scorned in American media. Yet some religions seem to be more hated than others.Yes, and where are the Hollywood projects that mock the Jewish faith? Why, they're even less "celebrated" than the others. Why might this be?
Try searching for a list of anti-Muslim movies on New York Magazine's website. Or anti-Wiccan. Or anti-Hindu. Hollywood projects that mock those faiths are not so highly celebrated.
Perhaps it's because, as the L.A. Times' Joel Stein bragged in 2008, "Jews totally run Hollywood."
When is NewsBusters going to "bust out" that fact? Its entire professed mission is "to provide immediate exposure of liberal media bias," but somehow it never manages to get to the Jewish Zionists at the root of that liberal bias, who use liberal media and left-liberalism in America to keep Americans and Christians dumbed down, manipulated, disorganized, soft and off balance even as those same Jews prescribe and defend religious conservatism and even theocracy for their Jewish cousins in Israel.
Americans need to root out liberal media bias, alright; and the even more powerful Zionist media bias as well. But don't look to NewsBusters for the latter. They're far more interested in inciting American wars for Israel against Islam.
By the way, doesn't the critic's reference to "mutant" Christianity more strongly suggest criticism of "Judeo-Christianity" than anything else, particularly in light of inferences that Christianity has become therapeutic and neurotic, and now "portrays God as a 'divine therapist'"?
Indeed, such a neurotic golem version of Christianity might be one that Jewish narcissist Woody Allen would conjure. And given their propensity to ridicule and degrade Christianity, there's little doubt all those squirming Jewish Zionist minds that have saturated MSM are really not that much different than his own.
